25th Anniversary Conference Videos
About the Conference
In October 2009 the Hypatia editorial team and the Simpson Center for the Humanities (University of Washington) hosted Feminist Legacies / Feminist Futures, a conference celebrating the 25th anniversary of Hypatia, A Journal of Feminist Philosophy. This is a significant anniversary for the journal and for feminist philosophy; the conference provided an opportunity to reflect on the formation and influence of feminist philosophies across the disciplines, to take stock of emerging trends, and to consider where feminist philosophy is headed in the next 25 years.
The conference program featured a number of keynote panels: Hypatia founders and editors traced the history of the journal from its inception in the early 1980s; early contributors reflected on the legacy of the journal in a number of key areas; an interdisciplinary panel of feminist scholars provided comparative perspective on the formation of feminist philosophy; and a panel of emerging feminist scholars explored "New Futures for Feminist Philosophy." In addition, a group of eight Hypatia founders who attended the conference—members of the founding editorial collective and past editors—recorded their reflections in a collective interview.
Links to videos of the keynote panel presentations and the founders' interview may be found below. They also may be found in this video album on Vimeo.
The conference program and abstracts are posted on the conference website. Hypatia will also be publishing a special 25th anniversary issue at the end of 2010 (Volume 25, Issue 4); check the journal website for details.
Feminist Philosophers: In Their Own Words
Produced by Joan Callahan and Nancy Tuana
Feminist Philosophers: In Their Own Words is pleased to have produced films of all the keynote sessions from the 25th Anniversary Conference of Hypatia.
Feminist Philosophers: In Their Own Words provides educators and scholars with in-depth, digitally filmed interviews with many of the scholars who generated and initially sustained feminist philosophy in North America. These two-hour DVDs provide an excellent introduction to the philosophical approaches of these theorists, as well as assisting scholars in understanding the ways in which social movements (such as the civil rights, anti-war, and women's movements of the 1960s and 1970s) influenced academic scholarship. For a full list of available interviews and ordering information, please see the FemPhil website at The Pennsylvania State University Rock Ethics Institute.
